マンゴー フローズン マルガリータ。
Finally a proper Mexican dinner! Mango frozen margarita was delicious, a big glass too! We ordered beer and sangria in pitchers and they were HUGE!! The sangria was sweet and strong, very good.

ENSALADA DE LA CASA : 日本では珍しいサボテンのマリネ。トマト、アボガド、チーズ、フライド・ポークスキンと一緒にどうぞ。
PULPO AL AJILLO : チレ・グァヒーヨとガーリックが香ばしいタコのソテー。グリーンピースで彩りました。
Marinated cactus, with tomato, avocado, cheese, fried pork skin. First time eating cactus, tasted pretty normal like bell pepper~
Octopus saute with chilli and garlic. Quite spicy and strong flavour, the octopus was very soft. Love this dish.

CAMARONES AL TEQUILA : 有頭エビにテキーラを効かせたクリームソースをかけました。
TORTILLAS : トルティーヤ。
Prawns with tequila cream sauce. This was everyone’s favourite. Very sweet and creamy, almost like a French dish. The tortillas came with most of the dishes other than those that came with rice, so we ended up with loads of them. We finished them all though cos they were very good with the sauces.

SOPA DE MARISCOS : エビ、イカ、カニなどを贅沢に使った辛めのシーフードスープ。
PUNTAS MEXICANAS : 牛フィレのスライスを野菜とチレで煮込みました。
Seafood soup with prawn, squid and crab. Not as hot as it looked, though rich with spice. Loved it.
Beef fillet simmered with vegetables and chilli. Tasted like a chinese dish!! Not spicy at all. The usual beans on the side were the best I have had so far, in complete paste form and very smooth, a bit salty.

POLLO CON MOLE CIRUELA : 30種類のスパイスとチョコレートを使った『モ-レ』ソースで食べる、グリルドチキン。
Grilled chicken with mole sauce. Finally tried mole sauce!!! :-D!! Supposed to be chocolate and spice? I was expecting some mind-blowing exotic taste but it turned out to be just a very mild and slightly bitter curry…^^;;
The band played around each table(yeah tacky I know but it was fun ^^;;) and you could request songs. All I could think of was “Quizas, Quizas, Quizas”, and they played it, which was very nice. I searched my ipod immediately and requested another song but they didn’t know it. ^^;;

CREPAS CON CAJETA : カヘタ(ミルクベースのキャラメルソース)をかけたクレープ。
LECHE FRITA CON TEQUILA : 揚げたカスタードに炎のついたテキーラをかけて。
Crepe with caramel sauce. The crepe tasted a bit old and hard. Not too sweet so easy to eat though.
Custard in flaming tequila. Nice show. ^^;; The aftermath custard tasted pretty normal. We had coffees also. The one with cinnamon and brown sugar was good but quite sweet. Tequila and coffee was very strong, my friend didn’t put sugar so a bit bitter for me. I had chocolate and coffee…hmm, for some reason it was not hot and just tasted like the instant hot choc you make before you go to bed. ^^;; Anyway, the atmosphere was great, the food was good overall, 5 of us shared and we drank quite a bit and it came up to 5000yen per person – expensive for Mexican perhaps but considering the location it was pretty reasonable.
